Your Carts

We provide commercial recycling and landfill collection to businesses in Unincorporated Santa Clara County.  While you are sorting recyclables, we are finding new ways to reuse your company’s materials.  We will work with you to tailor recycling and landfill programs based on your needs.

If you are a resident of Unincorporated Santa Clara County, please contact Recology South Bay.


Paper, bottles, cans, aluminum, glass, and most plastics (no plastic bags!) go in your blue cart. These items are then sorted by material-type and reused.


What is trash? Not much! Thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), cat litter, ceramics, and broken glass to name a few.



Commercial and residential customers may also drop off items for proper disposal at the San Martin Transfer Station.

Where does it go?
After garbage is dropped off at the San Martin Transfer Station, it is transported to a landfill. Recyclables such as paper, cardboard, cans, bottles, and metal are sent to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF). This facility sorts, bales, and then sells the material so it can be recycled and made into new products. Clean yard waste is transported to South Valley Organics, a compost facility located at the Pacheco Pass Landfill in Gilroy. This facility processes yard waste into compost.
